Hi, I lost my hair through chemotherapy, then when I started Letrozole a year ago it never really grew back and apart from a few strands I am bald on the crown and the front. My onc has suggested I try Tamoxifen to see if my hair grows back as it works in a different way to Letrozole and he thinks it is the Letrozole that has stopped my hair growing. Has anyone ever tried a different hormone therapy and found their hair had grown better? Thanks xx
Oh I'm so glad to read this as I've been really struggling with my hair! I've been on tamoxifen for 4 years and its only really been in the last few months that I've noticed my hair has lost it's natural curl and it's really limp. It's never been thick but it had the benefit of curl, but no more... I'm counting the months until I finish Tamoxifen and get rid of these side effects. (I know I shouldn't moan really, as hopefully it's saved my life)
I have experienced flattened and limp hair. It needs washing more often and comes out more easily. I didn't have chemo, but am on the Relon Tamoxifen, trying to find another brand that's better. My worst side effects are she-devil type anger and depression!
It's good to blame the Tamoxifen!
Thanks for sharing,
